Application Process

If you would like to be considered for a current open position with the Fort Worth Zoo, you must complete an online application through our Careers Portal.

When you enter the Careers Portal, you may search and review our current open positions. Each position description lists the essential duties and qualifications for the position.

Carefully review the job posting for an understanding of the essential duties and minimum qualifications of the position. Only those applicants meeting the minimum qualifications for a position will be considered.

Position openings may be altered or closed at any time that it is determined that sufficient qualified applicants have been identified or the position has been filled.

If you are interested in the position and feel you meet the qualifications, simply click on the Apply Now link in the job posting. You will be directed to the Careers Portal where you will be prompted to create an account. Once you create an account in our Careers Portal you can create a profile, search for and apply for open positions.

If you have already applied for a position with the Zoo, simply enter the email address and password that you created when you first applied and search the positions that are currently available.

When completing the online application, please provide complete and detailed description of work experience; “see resume” responses will not be considered.

After you successfully submit your online application you will receive a confirmation response.

Your application will be forwarded to and reviewed by the hiring manager.

You will only be contacted directly if an interview is desired.

Unfortunately, due to the number of applications we receive, we cannot respond to follow-up or status-check calls/requests.

We will provide reasonable accommodation to complete the online application consistent with applicable law. If you require an accommodation, please contact a human resources representative at
